Welcome to the Medicare Care Choices Model (MCCM) Portal
The Medicare Care Choices Model provides Medicare beneficiaries who qualify for coverage under the Medicare hospice benefit and dually eligible beneficiaries who qualify for the Medicaid hospice benefit the option to elect to receive supportive care services typically provided by hospice, while continuing to receive curative services. The Medicare Care Choice Model is designed to evaluate whether eligible Medicare and dually eligible beneficiaries would elect to receive supportive care services typically provided by hospice if they could also continue to receive curative services and whether providing both palliative and curative care concurrently impacts quality of care, as well as patient and family satisfaction.
“This model empowers clinicians, beneficiaries and their families with choices and is part of our broader efforts to transform our health care system into one that delivers better care, makes smarter payments, and puts patients in the center of their own care. We want to do what we can to help families find the care that is right for their loved one.”
---Former HHS Secretary Sylvia M. Burwell
This web portal enables hospice personnel to provide data on patient care under the new model. The data will be used to support hospices as they work with patients, understand what services are provided under the model, assess the quality of care, and evaluate whether the new model of care is meeting its goals
